Pre-Close Trading Statement James Halstead plc, the commercial flooring manufacturer and distributor, is providing the following trading update ahead of its final results for the year to 30 June 2016. In the Chairman's statement announced on 31 March 2016, it was reported that the first half year profit before tax was 7.5% ahead of the prior year comparative but early trading in the second half was challenging. Nevertheless, the Chairman expressed he had every expectation of continued progress in the second half year. During the majority of the year Sterling traded at a higher level than the prior year presenting challenges to our overseas turnover, which is in excess of 60% of total turnover. Just before the year end, late in June this reversed drastically, which bodes well for the new financial year. Trading through to 30 June 2016 has been solid and profit before tax for the full year will be ahead of last year, in line with market expectations and at the highest level in the Company's history. http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/james-halstead-JHD/share-news/James-Halstead-PLC-Pre-Close-Trading-Statement/72096974

If news is good companies usually can't wait to get it out so I hope there's no reason they'd delay it. Tipped in the Mail by Chris Hutchinson of the Unicorn Fund this morning so there may be an uptick on Monday so don't be misled.

wad collector I spoke to the company secretary at the end of last week and understand there is usually a trading update at end of July with the half year results in September.

Can't find the date of the next update on the company website ; 16% bounce is quite impressive in last 3 weeks.

I believe we are having a run up prior to the next trading update. Yesterday's volume was the second highest in the last 12 months. Just my opinion.

....Or maybe not , as some 415 buys have gone through. The MMs looking for a bit cut again though ; quoting a 5% spread.

"Amateur chartist" is a tautology :-) JHD is relatively illiquid so sometimes these apparent share price movements are just noise. Looks like yesterday's little rise might just have been one.

The present weakness in the share is an opportunity to top up. I am a very amateur chartist and once a month I assess all my shares and the only share I own at the moment which is not overbought is JHD

One of a few of my holdings to be blue after today's vote. Forex may be good for exports but suspect it will be complicated here. I traded out some for a small profit as I can't resist some bigger bargains elsewhere.

We can all agree this is a fantastic company, it may not be a fantastic current price, who knows.

I assume PVC is the main input cost other than energy. Prices have been reduced due to low oil price. In 2015 prices rose in the first half from below Euro700 to 900 per ton by Jul before sliding back to between 750 and 800 a ton by year end. Outlook for this year is stable At around 800 Euro / t. I have not observed a big correlation with raw materials prices but would welcome others views. It seems they manage to pass through reasonably. WB

One aspect which was mentioned several times in the Chairman's report is exchange rates. Since the half year end, the pound has weakened substantially against most currencies. For example, on 31st Dec, the GBP/Euro rate was 1.36 (and it had been as high as 1.44, although 1.36 was closer to the average). Today, it's 1.24 and for a substantial exporter to Europe, that's a big potential gain, either to sell more profitably or increase volume if it's a price sensitive market. I have no idea what the stronger dollar means in raw material terms and that's complicated by lower oil prices than 12 months ago, somebody cleverer than me can have a go at that one :-)

Good results indeed actually, but the outlook statement is rather shaky - shame they didn't quantify how difficult trading has been so far in H2.

I like that quote. But even better to pay a low price for a good company?

I don't think I have ever seen JHD at a truly low multiple. Its in the Warren Buffet school of better to pay a fair price for a good company than a good price for a fair company. A quality share imho and they didn't need to push the divi up so much. One of the best divi growth records out there and no sign of it slowing. One of my favourite LTBH shares. Will be making a modest top up. WB long JHD
